‘Alturas’ – PVP certificate number 200200158

‘Alturas’ is used primarily for processing, with its light russeting limiting its use for fresh pack; however, it has been rated highly for its culinary quality. It is notable for its high yields and solids and cold sweetening resistance. ‘Alturas’ has resistance to Verticillium wilt and early blight. Weaknesses include short tuber dormancy, late maturity in areas with short growing seasons and higher water requirements than ‘Russet Burbank’.

A release article for ‘Alturas’ was published in the American Journal of Potato Research in 2003, volume 80. In addition, an interpretive summary and technical abstract of “Alturas: a Multi-Purpose Russet Potato Cultivar with High Yield and Specific Gravity” is available on the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) site.

‘Alturas’ is exclusively licensed to the Potato Variety Management Institute (PVMI). Please contact PVMI directly for sub-licensing
